Hemotin-EPO stimulates red blood cell production in the bone marrow. It can be used in situations where natural erythropoietin synthesis is suppressed, resulting in anemia.
Hemotin-EPO is a purified glycoprotein, called erythropoietin. It is made using recombinant DNA technology and operates at an equivalent level to biological erythropoietin.
It can be used to assist persons suffering with anemia associated with chronic renal failure (whether patients are on dialysis or not) and to increase or maintain the red blood cells levels. Hemotin-EPO may help decrease the need for blood transfusions.
